June Verve Diva Inspiration Hop


Diva Hop2 

It's the 5th of the month and time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings!

Our June challenge is Eat Me, Drink Me

Are you fueled by coffee, tea or cocoa? Find cupcakes irresistible? Create a card featuring an edible treat or favored beverage!  Use the inspiration graphic as a starting point, or head off in your own direction - just leave us needing a fix of your favorite indulgence!

I couldn't resist inking up this tiny cupcake from Small Packages with white embossing powder on watercolor paper.  After diecutting using the Cupcake Frame Die Set, I used Distress Markers to add some watercolor.  My back panel was done using the same shades of Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and Cracked Pistachio watercolored randomly.  My sentiment, from Cupcakes, was white heat embossed and Sparkling Clear Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh) were added.
